What's the best programme to use to convert m4a's to MP3's?
Something that keeps the meta data.
Didn't work. Only wants to know about what application you want to use to open it with. Or..am I dense? This should be easier!
music converter is the program you want - free and simple to use.
change the default settiing for cd rips to mp3 instead of m4a, once that is set like that when you right click there should be a convert to mp3 option
Bu thanks for all the help. I'll give these suggestions a shot.
iTunes is the easiest way to convert m4a to mp3. If you really don't like iTunes, no one says you have to keep it after you're done converting.
It's so simple - once in iTunes, click on Edit, then Preferences, then in the first tab, click on the Import Settings button. Choose mp3 encoder from the drop down list, and Higher quality 192kbps (or higher in custom). Once this is set, you'll then be able to import your m4a files into iTunes, select them all and click convert to mp3, and voila, job is done.
it'll sound like turd
It's not bloody rocket surgery.
